Hi guys,

I would like to know what is the product that the Ace of Cakes bakery (Food Network show) uses when they say they are "airbrushing sparkle" on. Thanks.

I mix luster or pearl dust with everclear and airbrush it on.

TexasSugar, what type of airbrush do you have? I have been thinking about buying one, and not quite sure which one , Ive looked at the ones from Micheals, but their compressors are very expensive, Then i looked at KopyKakes and theres are cheapier, Thank You sorry to jump in icon_redface.gif

I have one form KopyKakes that I got about 5 or 6 years ago. It is the red one and has worked for me.

TexasSugar: do you have problems with the airbrush clogging when you spray the luster/pearl dust in everclear? I ask because, since the powder will not dissolve, particulates will remain, so I've always been worried that I'm going to spend more time declogging the airbrush than actually airbrushing. icon_smile.gif
